Civil Engineering

Being the oldest engineering discipline in vogue, Civil Engineering is the father of all engineering disciplines. With such a distinguished history behind it and centuries of accumulated knowledge and skills it becomes a delicate and often onerous task while framing the course curriculum to do justice to the reservoir of knowledge inherited from the past while at the same time reconciling it to the dramatic changes brought about by the digital revolution.

While framing a dynamic and all-inclusive course curriculum emphasis has been laid on including the basic aspects of all facets of the discipline, namely, construction materials, structural analysis, structural design in steel and concrete, water resources engineering, transportation engineering, environmental engineering, surveying and geotechnical engineering. At the same time, in recognition of the importance of computer applications, courses like structural analysis in particular, have been framed in such a manner as to encourage the student to exploit the potential of computers for solving engineering problems. A strong curriculum is only one important component of the tripod of the Departments competitiveness.

The second component is a competent, well-qualified and dedicated faculty and supporting staff. Civil Engineering is a most sought after programme these days as the demands for Civil Engineering is growing significantly. The economic development of country cannot be achieved without core infrastructural facilities. This field of study is one of the core areas of engineering which plays important role in the development process.
